Darren Blocker ’22 scored 34 points and Bryson Brown ’24 had 22 points, but Mercersburg’s boys’ varsity basketball team fell 103–81 at host Lawrenceville in the Blue Storm’s Mid-Atlantic Prep League regular season finale February 12 in Lawrenceville, NJ.

Blocker hit nine three pointers less than 24 hours after scoring 37 points in a 118–81 loss at the Hun School of Princeton February 11. Brown had 20 points in that contest. Mercersburg played both games without two key senior post players, who sat out due to injury.

The Storm (4–14, 0–5 MAPL) now heads to the MAPL Tournament in Blairstown, NJ, which begins Friday, February 18. Mercersburg will face Hill at 8:30 p.m. in a first-round contest, and will play again Saturday, February 19, at either 11:45 a.m. or 7:30 p.m. (depending on the results of Friday’s game).
